special meal, which also includes a lovely lei greeting, an escort to the dining location, fine linen, china,
silverware and, of course, a mood setting candle and torchlight. The experience comes complete with your
own dedicated personal server.
My meal recommendation for the Romantic Dining Experience is a dish I created, Big Island Nutmeg and
Macadamia Nut Crusted Scallops. The plump scallops are brought in fresh from Hawaiÿi Island where
they are then crusted with the unexpected flavor marriage of nutmeg and macadamia nuts and cooked
to juicy perfection. The dish is topped with an avocado emulsion adding a smooth and velvety element.
Topped with fennel, this dish pays homage to comforting flavors and ingredients of autumn.
An excellent pairing is the 2012 Broken Road Chardonnay from Stonestreet Winery in Sonoma,
California. Hailing from Alexander Mountain, the high elevations help maintain high acidity level and
the vineyard’s long growing seasons bring physiological maturity to the grapes. Aged in French oak (50%
new and 50% used), the grapes impart beautiful notes of baking spices such as vanilla, cloves, and nutmeg
complementing the seasoning in the dish. Each sip finishes with a grip acidity that cleanses the palate.
